's a number. what's the point -- >> you didn't put chris christie in that bunch. >> of course not. ken langone supports him. chris christie is the baseballaire's favorite republican. these guys talking in platitudes, we got to work together. work together to do what? i want to know what? what are they going to do about the $100 trillion unfund liability? that's the question that needs to be asked to every single one of them. it will destroy our country. they keep talking about repealing obamacare. have you seen a repeal proposal? what exactly are they going to repeal? a bunch of republican governors said they don't want to. >> that's what i what going to follow up on. and just to clarify for folks listening, we have nearly $14 trillion debt when mark refers to the unfunded liabilities, that's close to 100 trillion. so, let me ask you about what these republican governors are saying. talk about shooting the message here. the message among republicans putting it on obamacare, these republican governors are saying, when push comes to shove we won't be able to get rid of this thing. so the whole r
chris christie, made a golf metaphor today at a town hall me meeting, an almost wistful one, one that's turning a lot of heads. >> i'm not worried about politics anymore, anybody. this is it. i'm on the back nine. and when you're on the back nine and you don't have to worry about playing another front nine, your only obligation is to tell people the truth. mm-hmm. >> christie's folks insisted he was only referring to his second term in the governor's office, not ruling anything else out. but if he sounded a little down, maybe it's because he saw this, a new poll from cbs news and "the new york times" showing that 41% of republicans do not want to see governor christie run for the white house. last night on "late night," seth meyers referenced another potentially troubling number for the governor. >> a new poll shows that half of new jersey residents believe chris christie was involved in the bridgegate scandal. half of them. while the other half know how to keep their frigging mouths shut. >> speaking of 2016, it could be a paper tiger or political land mine for hillary clinton. more
states. a defiant chris christie says he will not let the hysteria over the new jersey bridgegate scandal distract him from what he calls his real job or his second-term agenda. the governor has denied knowing anything about the politically motivated lane closings at the george washington bridge. in a radio interview wednesday, christie was asked about the impact of the state legislature's investigation. >> of course it distracts, but it doesn't prevent us from doing our job. i mean, sure, because if you spent any amount of time on it during any day, that's time that you otherwise would be spending on something else. so, of course, to some extent, but it's an important thing to have to look into and get to the bottom of, and as i've said before, we'll spend the time that we need to spend on it, on appropriate investigations, and then when we have all the information we need, we'll put it out to the public. >> governor christie acknowledged that his approval numbers have dropped considerably, but he says they're still better than most governors across the country. >>> all right, we're gett
a democrat in name, the guy who also called chris christie the king of bacon. >> now that chris christie is out of the way, i think rand paul sees an opening there and trying to be more civil mind tsz in the conversation. >> i think what he's saying is i'm building up the far right. he's become the king of the tea party. i think what ted cruiz is sayin is it's much easier to start from the right and go to the middle. and we could see ted cruz doing better than many think. >> you can't really question that rand paul is a conservative. cruz had his back on the filibuster. he's a pretty -- it's hard to find a liberal part of rand paul. >> no, but if it comes to rabd paul versus ted cruz, rand paul saying let's broaden our appeal, ted cruz is their man. >> i think the conversation is interesting in the con text of what actually happened in washington over the last four or five points. you had the end of the shutdown, the ryan deal which the republican party didn't like, a farm bill they weren't happy with. and now a debt limit increase done with no concession to conservatives. so you're havi
the lane closures. >> not one. >> challenge chris christie to hold the next town hall at temple beth shalom. >> different wheels in motion. >> residents may be waiting for in ex-shoe to drop. >> all the stuff to come out. >> what do you do? grab them by the ankles and shake them upside down? >> the governor will have to explain why he put such people around. >> my job is to be the adult in the room. i have an obligation to tell you all the truth, no matter what. >> nightmare traffic, irate motorists, medical emergencies, today, we are hearing the sounds of crisis in just-leads 911 calls recorded during last september's surprise four-day closings of lanes leading to the george washington brim. >> somebody hurt? >> that is just a sampling of the 28 hours of emergency calls released today as part of the investigation into what happened during the epic four-day traffic jam now known as bridgegate. and while the calls do not counter previous reports that no one died and no major medical attention was dedelayed due to the lane closures, they do help to highlight the very real lives at stake and t
, that that is not true. and he was not the only chris christie ally advancing that untrue story about how nothing that happened on the bridge that week affected public safety. the head of the police union and close ally of governor chris christie, he defended the lane closures, quote, was there any ambulance delay? no. was there any police service delay? no. yes, actually. there were delays as a result of that fake traffic study, which was some politically motivated vendetta against that town that still hasn't been explained. paul nunziato has apparently reduced his role in that job. he says he hasn't stepped down fully, but he's reduced his role in the job. for his part, bill baroni has reportedly resigned. so we learned something about this basically still unexplained story. we learned when chris christie's chief of staff briget kelly ordered up those traffic problems in ft. lee, boy, she really got what she wanted. they ordered that up and in many cases it had serious consequences to the people in that town. it may have been a lark to christie staffers and allies, but it was serious to the peo
bridge scandal tonight. chris christie's former campaign manager appears to be the subject of a federal criminal investigation. in a court filing, bill stepien's attorney says his client is in, quote, the throes of a criminal investigation, and that the feds have tried to contact stepien directly, saying that on january 17th, an fbi special agent called stepien's cell. shortly later, two assistant u.s. attorneys called stepien's lawyer. then in mid-february, an fbi agent along with the department of justice investigator paid a visit to stepien's home. we're also learning the u.s. attorney's office tried to contact former deputy chief of staff bridget kelly and her parents. both stepien and kelly were very close to christie, and they are the only two to publicly say they will not turn over any documents. so where is this investigation going next? joining me now, former u.s. attorney kendall coffey. kendall, thanks for your time tonight. >> hey, thanks for inviting me, reverend. >> a criminal investigation, what does that tell you, kendall? >> well, it tells you that they decided that the
